When 8th grade Jared Marcum got dressed for school on Thursday he says he had no idea that his pro-Second Amendment shirt would initiate what he calls a fight over his First Amendment rights.

"I never thought it would go this far because honestly I don't see a problem with this, there shouldn't be a problem with this," Jared said.

It was the image of a gun printed on Jared's t-shirt that sparked a dispute between a Logan Middle School teacher and Jared, that ended with Jared suspended, arrested and facing two charges, obstruction and disturbing the education process, on his otherwise spotless record.

Jared's father Allen Lardieri says he's angry he had to rush from work to pick his son up from jail over something he says was blown way out of proportion.

"I don't' see how anybody would have an issue with a hunting rifle and NRA put on a t-shirt, especially when policy doesn't forbid it," Lardieri said.

The Logan County School District's dress code policy prohibits clothing that displays profanity, violence, discriminatory messages and more but nowhere in the document does it say anything about gun images.

"He did not violate any school policy," Lardieri reiterates. "He did not become aggressive."

Now, Lardieri says he's ready to fight until the situation is made right.

"I will go to the ends of the earth, I will call people, I will write letters, I will do everything in the legal realm to make sure this does not happen again," Lardieri said.

Logan City Police did confirm that Jared had been arrested and charged today.

13 news tried contacting the Logan County School District but has not heard anything back.

Right or wrong, any dipshit knows that wearing that shirt to school is going to be a problem.

However, I have no idea why this would result in an arrest.

Explain this retarded statement.

Arrested would be too far. I have no idea why schools don't have uniform policies. It's just incredibly short-sighted, in my opinion.

You don't think that would disturb a lot of students and teachers?

Controversial shirts are banned from schools all the time. Kids aren't allowed to wear shirts that promote drug and alcohol use. My senior class had shirts that said "Big Cock Security" with a picture of a rooster in a police uniform...banned.

In middle school me and a buddy jocked Kurt Cobain's style and wore dresses over our clothes. We were told to remove them immediately.

Typically schools here would make kids turn their shirts inside-out if their shirt was thought to be offensive.

I agree that arresting this kid may be over the line though.

Growing up in central Kansas, seeing these shirts were pretty much standard operating procedure in high school.

Schools are sensitive about guns. That's the way it is. Tough shit if you can't wear your gun shirt to school.

I believe the most of these policies usually say something about clothing that is disruptive as well.

It's still stupid to kick him out of class, but I noticed when they wrote "and more" in the story that there is probably something that the writer didn't tell us.

Methinks this might be more believable as a complaint about 1st Amendment oppression if the dad picked up the kid from school and not at the jail.

You never know with these stories, but it seems that even if the teacher was in the wrong for thinking that the shirt was not allowed, the kid might have compromised his chance to defend 2 constitutional amendments all at once if he went berserk enough to get charged with obstruction. Assuming that is obstructing a police officer.

We live in a particular era where school shootings are something that students, teachers, administration, and parents take very serious caution with, as more than an abstract threat, but something that should be prepared for.

Whole thing seems insane to me, to be honest.

The complete lack of telling how it escalated into an arrest is interesting.
